Jay Z’s Label Countersues Rita Ora For Millions

It’s a sad day for Rita Ora. According to reports, Jay Z’s label, Roc Nation, is suing the UK star for over $2 million. Roc Nation is claiming that Rita did not hold up her half of the contract deal, which required her to produce five albums — the singer has only produced one. Rita’s first album Ora dropped in 2012, and the label also added that millions of dollars were spent on marketing and developing her second album which has yet to be released. The lawsuit comes after the British star filed a claim stating the label stopped giving her adequate attention. She says this happened after the label began managing professional athletes. Rita’s suit went on to state, “As Roc Nation’s interests diversified, there were fewer resources available and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita’s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company.” According to sources, the dispute may not last very long. Both Rita and Jay both want to sever ties with one another and end this issue as quickly as possible. Howard King, Rita’s attorney, said of the feud, “Jay Z has personally and graciously promised Rita complete freedom from Roc Nation, the details of which are now being finalized. We believe that Roc Nation’s distributor, Sony Music, has required Roc Nation to file this action to preserve whatever rights Sony might have pending resolution.” We’ll see how this case plays out.

Kanye West In the Studio Working With Kendrick Lamar & Swizz Beatz

As fans patiently wait for Kanye West to deliver his next project, Swish, the producer jumped on Twitter to share what he’s up to regarding the album. According to his tweets, Yeezy was recently in the studio with Kendrick Lamar and Swizz Beatz. West posted a photo of him and K.Dot lounging in the studio. “We just wanna thank Madlib for these 6 beat CDs he sent over #scary,” he tweeted. If they sound anything like “No More Parties in L.A.,” then expect some serious heat. The G.O.O.D. Music leader also posted a photo of a classic SP-1200 drum machine. “Had to do it,” he wrote. Hopefully, this means that West going back to the basics and giving us that soul-sampled, “Runaway” type of production. While all of this is exciting. We couldn’t be more joyful that Swizz Beatz is in the studio — possibly supervising the session — and working with Yeezy as well. Swizzy posted one photo on his Instagram account of himself, West, Don C and CyHi the Prynce in the studio together. This is especially telling because last year, CyHi dropped a purported diss song aimed at West and many thought that he was leaving the G.O.O.D. Music family. Well, it looks like things are back to normal between the two. Overall, it seems that West is still putting the finishing touches on Swish. The 38-year-old rapper-producer has only a couple of weeks left to complete the project if he plans to release the album on Feb. 11. In the meantime, enjoy the photos below. And yes, Yeezy Season has begun!

RZA Breaks Silence On Martin Shkreli Album Feud: “He Bought It, He Can Do What He Wants

In a new interview with Bloomberg TV, RZA revealed how he feels about selling the Wu-Tang Clan‘s one-of-a-kind album to ‘Pharma bro’ Martin Shkreli for $2 million. And surprisingly, RZA isn’t too worried about Shkreli’s controversial public persona; the prolific rapper says Shkreli can do whatever he wants with the album. “He bought it, he can do what he wants. Art—the beautiful thing about art, from my standpoint, is that it has no discrimination,” said RZA. The interviewer then asked RZA how he felt about Shkreli calling him arrogant when Wu-Tang reportedly distanced themselves from the sale after the executive’s unsavory business practices were revealed. Shkreli was later arrested on charges related to securities fraud. Regarding RZA, Shkreli told HipHopDX in an interview, “He definitely acts like his s— doesn’t stink and he invented rap. This concept of selling one album, this s—’s backfiring for him now.” RZA responded in the best way possible – by not taking Shkreli’s claims so seriously. “What could backfire from creating a piece of art, having an idea, and to see it grow into fruition? As far as me being arrogant, it depends on what day you catch me, baby.”

T-Pain Returns to NPR and Performs a Stripped-Down Concert Set

A year after shocking the world with his fantastic vocal performance without Auto-Tune on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, T-Pain returns to NPR for an encore performance. The rappa-ternt-sanga performed some of his biggest hits, including “Tipsy,” “Can’t Believe It,” “Bartender” as well as a cover of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come.” T-Pain also performed a new song from his new album, Stoicville: The Phoenix, called “Officially Yours.” Not only did the concert marked the one year anniversary since the “I’m Sprung” singer performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk — crafting the most popular performance in the series of all time — it’s also the ten year anniversary since T-Pain’s debut album, Rappa Ternt Sanga, was released. And the 30-year-old singer spoke to Billboard about the ground-breaking album. “I didn’t know what was cool or wasn’t cool — I was just going off life. It was just a story at that point. I wasn’t the clever type in the studio,” he recalls. “I wasn’t the type to come up with the new dances or the new sayings so I just figured why not share stories of what I did today? I can tell that story in four different ways from different perspectives so at the time, I wasn’t trying to think of it as anything special, anything very different. I just thought I was telling the truth.” He also said that Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak is a “direct copy” of his debut album. “I’m not just being a d— saying that s— sounds a lot like mine. Like literally [Kanye] told me that he listened toRappa Ternt Sanga and he made 808s & Heartbreaks. He even brought me in to make it sound more like Rappa Ternt Sanga.” [Laughs.] “Something that I did that was directly copied got so many awards — that’s evidence right there,” he adds. “Rappa Ternt Sanga is still relevant because the sound is still prevalent in the whole industry. It’s never gonna stop.’ Check out the T-Pain’s Tiny Desk concert above.

Dumped over Skepta Tattoo

It seems Grime MC Skepta is becoming broadly popular, and it’s safe to say 2015 has already been a big year for him. Grime music has often been shunned from mainstream British media, but international artist such as Kayne West and Drake have shown a good amount of support for the scene. With his expanding fame, the latest news of holiday go-er Liam Scott being dumped for his ‘Skepta tattoo’, is trending on social media. The ‘Shutdown’ fan did gain a friendly response from Skepta, advising him “Plenty more fish in the sea bro.”
